It is well known among the high end pivot door industry that Sing Core pivot door blanks are the only way to create the best lightweight, high-strength pivot door of any size (even extremely large in size) that can be guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist or otherwise fail (including full structure warranty) for 50 years.
It’s no wonder the clients who use patented Sing pivot door core to build their high end doors are using the latest in leading edge pivot door hardware. While your pivot doors for the elite may feature any type or style of pivot door hardware made by any of the most popular pivot door hinge manufacturers, one new type of pivot door hinge is getting installed in more large pivot doors with Sing Core inside.
It has come to our attention that the new System M hardware from FritsJurgens in Holland is what all the latest buzz is all about.
What’s the big deal?
The big deal around Sing Core is always about big pivot doors. Not only big pivot doors but the biggest pivot doors because you could be talking about thousands of pounds of a large pivot door, which could be reduced to ten percent of the weight by having Sing Core inside.
Architects, our custom door manufacturers and millwork clients rely on the lightweight fail-safe aspects of pivot doors made with Sing Core to keep your project, not only at the elitist level of excellence, but within a reasonable budget. While those huge pivot doors can be very expensive to build and handle, the sheer weight of the door dictates the hardware necessary to accommodate such a door.
Installation of the hardware to operate an enormous pivot door can require extensive engineering efforts as well as becoming a burden on the installation, especially if it is being retrofit into an existing structure (not so bad if prepared for in a new structure being built).
Then comes along Holland’s FritsJurgens with the perfect match of sleek System M hardware that is the easiest pivot door hardware to install, especially in a retrofit application, carrying a weight of up to an 1,100 pound pivot door. That could be a 37 foot tall pivot door with Sing Core inside!
Concealed Pivot Door Hardware
The pivot closer is concealed within the door, not the floor! Making this the easiest to install pivot door hardware, requiring very little modification at the job site to install. Some of our custom pivot door builders are able to transport a completed pivot door system fully installed and pre-hung from their factory or millwork to the job site for the easiest installation of pivot doors ever, thanks to FritsJurgens’ System M nearly concealed hardware.
If you’re using a Sing pivot door blank for your pivot door substrate and you plan on using FritsJurgens’ System M pivot door hardware, all you have to do is let our design staff know when you’re placing your order. Sing Core can pre-install the required blocking necessary to accommodate the FritsJurgens System M pivot door hardware.
If you’re upgrading an existing non-Sing pivot door to a pivot door with Sing Core inside, you will be glad to know that FritsJurgens’ new System M closer works with existing FritsJurgens top plate and top pivot.
At present, this is a leading-edge well-kept secret among the most elite high end custom door manufacturers, but we thought you would like advance notice before this product becomes more widespread in use across the United States.
According to John Derosa, “The M is a wonderfully engineered, highly advanced pivot closer that is changing the technology of pivot doors. The fully adjustable M is the closer solution for large, heavy pivot doors without having to install any hardware into the floor or the ceiling.”
Here are some of what you can expect from your FritsJurgens System M Closer:
- Everything in the door, nothing in the floor or ceiling
- Super thin profile for min thickness doors 1 3/4″ (or thinner?)
- 5 different models to choose from based on door width, weight, location of pivot (M32A, M32B, M32C, M32D, M32E)
- Holds 661 lb doors and up to 1,100 lb doors under special circumstances
- Adjustable speed, backset, floor plate and more adjustments
